Impressive duo on the horizon.
The strategy of Viral Video marketing is getting out of control to such an extent that now they can’t even exist without ”pretending” they aren’t meant to be there in the first place…
So not fooling anyone is Nokia’s decision to let slip a highly polished commercial for two as yet unannounced new E series Qwerty smartphones: the E72 slider and E75 candybar. So what do we learn?
Aside from that we are supposedly living in a Gillet-model dominated, yuppie society undergoing a revolutionary architectural boon during this (s)Recession(/s) Credit Crunch – not an awful lot. That said what we can ascertain is in the case of the E72 Nokia looks to have squished a full sliding Qwerty keyboard into one of the slimmest bodies to date, that it features an accelerometer and both models offers WiFi and HSDPA connectivity, MMS (no, the irony isn’t lost on us either) and unrealistically fast loading web pages (thanks for starting this horrible trend Apple) from a full scaling browser.
Cameras also get shown off but given the models’ business aspirations I wouldn’t be holding out hope for much more than a fixed focus 3.2MP snapper (ok, maybe autofocus could be thrown in).
Clearly designed to go after the BlackBerry and Windows Mobile markets more than the love it/hate it Cupertino device the E72 and E75’s polished ad suggests the duo will soon be market ready. Q4 for sure, but just when who knows?
